Although Christian Marclay's video work The Clock remains on display in the Israel Museum's Focus Gallery through the fall, for the most part, screenings of the 24-hour piece are relegated to the museum's opening hours. However, for the full experience, the general public is invited to the museum for two special 24-screenings, one beginning at 16:00 on September 13, and another beginning at 16:00 on October 18.

While the rest of the museum galleries are closed (from 21:00 on Tuesday through 10:00 on Wednesday), this screening is open to the general public for free. The café adjacent to the gallery will stay open throughout the night.

The Clock is an internationally acclaimed masterwork of video art, composed of thousands of film excerpts illuminating the passage of time by means of time-related references, among them images of clocks, watches, or announcements identifying specific times of the day. Marclay extracted each of these moments from its original context to form a 24-hour montage that unfolds according to his reconstruction in real time.

The Clock premiered in London in October 2010, and has since been presented in New York, Los Angeles, Venice, and Moscow. See more information on the Israel Musuem's website.
